Use this apartment pool season checklist to have fun this summer!

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer when people of all ages can finally indulge in the comfort of the swimming pool! At the Apartments of Wildewood, we are happy to offer our guests access to enjoyable swimming pools located right here in their community. An afternoon by the pool can be a great way to cool off, relax, and have family-friendly fun in the sun. Before heading out to enjoy your apartment pool season, ensure you’re prepared with our essential pool checklist. Here are the essentials for a safe and enjoyable pool day.


  • Why: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays to prevent sunburn and reduce the risk of long-term effects like skin cancer.
  • Tip: Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30, and reapply about every two hours or immediately after swimming. Cover all exposed skin areas, including your face (with face-specific sunscreen), arms, legs, backs, and torsos!

Hats and Sunglasses

  • Why: Shield your face and eyes from direct sunlight to avoid sunburn and eye damage. Hats protect your sensitive scalp from sun damage, and eyeglasses provide more comfort during sunny days.
  • Tip: Choose a wide-brimmed hat for maximum coverage and polarized sunglasses to reduce glare and enhance comfort.

Water to Drink

  • Why: Staying hydrated is crucial, especially when spending time in the sun.
  • Tip: Bring a reusable water bottle and take frequent sips to prevent dehydration. If you’re at the pool with young kids, monitor whether they are drinking enough. If you plan to stay for a while, you might bring your water in portable insulated bags that can help keep the water cool.

Floaties for Young Swimmers

  • Why: Safety first! Floatation devices help young swimmers stay afloat and build confidence in the water.
  • Tip: Ensure floaties are correctly fitted, and always check for wear and tear before using floaties this apartment pool season.

Adult Supervision

  • Why: Constant supervision is essential to ensure the safety of children in and around the pool.
  • Tip: Designate a responsible adult to watch over young swimmers at all times. Never leave children unattended. Lifeguards can help watch kids and keep them safe, but they can’t watch every kid simultaneously. To ensure maximum safety, make sure a responsible member of your party is keeping an eye on the younger ones.


  • Why: Maintaining a clean pool area ensures a pleasant experience for everyone throughout the apartment pool season and helps prevent the spread of germs.
  • Tip: Shower before entering the pool, avoid bringing glass containers, and clean up any trash before you leave.

Apartment Pool Rules and Guidelines

  • Why: Following the pool rules ensures a safe and enjoyable environment for all residents.
  • Tip: Familiarize yourself with the posted apartment pool rules and guidelines, such as no diving, no running around the pool, and designated swimming hours.

Additional Tips for a Fantastic Pool Day

  • Bring Towels and Extra Clothes: Pack enough towels for drying off and, if needed, an extra set of clothes to change into after swimming.
  • Snacks: Healthy, non-meltable snacks like fruits, veggies, and nuts can keep your energy levels up without the risk of feeling too full to swim.
  • Respect Others: Be mindful of noise levels and respect the personal space of other pool-goers. Sharing the space harmoniously ensures everyone has a great time.

Following this checklist will prepare you for a safe, fun, and relaxing apartment pool season at the Apartments of Wildewood. Let’s make the most of this pool season and create wonderful memories together. See you by the pool!
